7:01 pm
they did is an island of lombok is hit by another strong earthquake triggering landslides and panic on the streets plus we all recognize the significance but to be honest right now isn't our view i feel nothing but exciting. the cost is all asians the director and executive producer we look at the film taking hollywood by storm. we begin in latin america where tensions over migration are boiling over brazil is sending troops to its border with venezuela after hundreds of migrants were won out of town by locals dozens of resilience attacked two makeshift camps and. in packer i'm aware at least a thousand of venezuelans have been living they've burned belongings and set fire to one of the sites cheering as the venezuelans were forced to cross back over the border residents say the violence began off to several migrants robbed
7:02 pm
a shop local shop owner tens of thousands of venezuelans have now fled into brazil in the past three years they're escaping the moment and political crisis back home . i was on the ramp at the joins us live from colombia's capital bogota where he's monitoring events in the region for us alessandro can you tell us about this what's been happening in brazil and across the border into venezuela. well it did yeah clear that the situation seems to be getting out of control in many of these border crossings in colombia every deal and also now in ecuador as more and more a venezuelan migrants are out of necessity fleeing their country they are flooding many of these towns many of these like the ones like the one you were describing pack around where the worst incident has happened on saturday are already very poor
7:03 pm
towns that are ill equipped to receive such a huge influx of people the brazilian government has recently sealed their northern border at the beginning of august as you were saying in your introduction they've sent troops and but they're saying that if they continue to see the numbers in the u.n. says that another two million colombians sorry business wayland's could be leaving their country. this year this situation could get completely out of control and we're seeing an increase in incidents like the one that happened on saturday in brasil and this of course worries governments here that are taking more extreme measures to try and control or stem the flow of any swelling migrants indeed and speaking of that it seems that ecuador and peru now say that the venezuelans coming across need to have passports which is a problem for many of those venezuelans we just have been using identity cards and
7:04 pm
that's affecting where you are in colombia where more than i would say hundreds of thousands have been crossing over in the past few months can you tell us why. yes absolutely the almost a million venezuelans have to arrive in colombia in the last two years these are the ones that have decided to stay many more are trying to cross the continent and reach in most cases people who are chile where they already have relatives where it's easier for them to find work and as you were saying a country such as ecuador and cruel and also colombia has made more stringent measures for venezuelans to come into colombia or across the country all these governments are trying to control this flow of migrants but demanding passports is not going to stop this migration migration south or east peace here in colombia and
7:05 pm
also international organizations are saying that this will create more problems creating a bigger crisis in these border towns in particular increasing the number of people that are crossing these countries illegally which brings another level of problems to this already very critical situation. this continent has really never seen as crises like this one we're talking about a place where for example here in colombia the internal conflict as this police millions of people but the amount of migrants that we're seeing fleeing for economic reasons in such a short amount of time is no president in here and that's why at this crisis seems to be out of control and nobody really sees a way to stop it and i stand there and be at the with a view on the situation in colombia and surrounding regions and men as well i thank
7:06 pm
you so much. indian authorities are worried about the outbreak of disease in the southern state of carola following the worst floods in a century of surrender the rains have eased but there are now health fears for the seven hundred twenty five thousand people who are crammed in relief camps in rescuers are also continuing efforts to reach people cut off for days many of them without food and water andrew thomas has this report. people in caroline describe the height of the water not at centimeters or inches but in debt relative to their politics ankle deep valley deep waist deep. something looking kilometers to destroy i wrote. my column and then it went off beyond my head. the ground floor was completely covered with the old are evacuated first carried

7:08 pm
been fifty four helicopters over carola some drop supplies others amounting rescues the weather is improving there was much less rain across carola on sunday than at the end of last week but what is already full and is fast flowing dangerous and everywhere this is an ongoing emergency. and under thomas has more from my door and carola. on sunday a large twenty two thousand people were evacuated from their hard we saw some of those evacuations where trucks can get seen by all and they're bringing large numbers of people out but in other cases there has to be posts particularly the elderly who can't get voices up in trucks they are being brought out slowly on boats and then carried once they reach the dry land. but even though you're twenty two you haven't paid for let me go back to you i just don't want to die and more than eight hundred thousand people now are living in camps that is only
7:09 pm
a small part of base because a much larger number of people are still staying in their homes mostly voluntarily they don't want to leave we saw many people whose ground floors of their homes were needy whites deep in water they're living up stairs they want to stay where they also the over room they get the people whose homes have been flooded they've been affected by this disaster is in the millions it really is a huge huge huge disaster in this part of india on monday the military will continue to fly helicopters in they will drop materials from those helicopters in the most remote communities and also continue with their air rescues as well although we believe that the majority of their rescues now all finished. and it's drawing it's not running at the moment it hasn't done for most of sunday and that means it will lead to levels of slowly receding so some good news there.
